Something different, something beautiful, something with familiar flavours, something that is not only going to make you bananas but also nuts about this delicious recipe, time and time again. What is it?
This is "Bonkers!"
My two favorite profiles and all day vapes are a strawberry bakery recipe and a banana bakery recipe. As a DIYer it has pained me for years that I have been handcuffed to a recipe called "Banana Bondage", from a recently defunct commercial eLiquid creator. It pained me because for so long I challenged myself to create something almost as good or better. This recipe in my opinion is better!
I love a hot banana, something authentic and has body through out the vape. I have also been experimenting with many various pairings & combinations over a long time to finally get this recipe that has finally set me free and it's fair to say has made me "Bonkers" with excitement!
Steep Time - Great off the shake but even better in 5+ days
Banana Flambe by Solub Arome
"Had me at hello."
It's cooked banana done right, no off notes and provides the hot body of banana in this recipe.
Banana Custard by Vape Train
I used to sweeten the banana delicately and help provide some contrast not only to the banana but also to the pudding body of this vape.
Vanilla Pudding by Flavorah
Provides a lovely vanilla body and really helps round the edges of how this recipe works.
Caramel by Flavor Art
Helps to assist with a lovely syrupy caramelisation in this recipe. Normally I would always pair with FA Butterscotch as they are great friends but in this profile there are other tones that allows FA Butterscotch to have a rest for now.
Honeycomb by Vape Train
Gives a lovely contrasting sweetness and texture to this recipe that can be appreciated more after a 5 day steep.
Sesame Candy by Wonder Flavors
With my several paring experiments, I have found this flavour to be the perfect compliment to sweetening nuts, popcorn and giving something lovely to caramels. In this recipe it is used to enhance the peanut butter honeycomb & caramel notes and it works wonderfully.
Peanut Butter DX by TFA/TPA
This is the twist, this is what delivers morrishness as it reciprocates delectably with all the other flavours in this recipe. As a smooth peanut butter, it works well but works better with the right enhancement and it's fair to say the compliments are mutual with all the other flavours in this recipe.
This is a white whale recipe that has gotten better than the white whale I was looking for originally, but that is the journey of DIY. DIY allows you to create what you like!
If you mix this and like it or not, let me know in the comments below :)
IMO this is a very pleasant and enjoyable vape on a single coil RDA at 60W with a SST single coil at 0.2 ohm and various mesh subohm tanks as well. Vary the wattage and see what you taste!
Steep Time 5 Days for best results.
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

Had to take a break from testing/mixing FA Tobaccos . . . so, I made this. A banana/coconut pudding RY4. The bones of this are the beautiful duo of coconuts in hashslingingslashur's Leche de Coco with 2 fantastic bananas (TFA Banana Nut Bread and Solub Arome's Banana Flambe), FA Bavarian Cream, and the underrated JF Cookie v2 making up the pudding. 2 RYs (JF RY4 Double and WF Vanilla Ruyan) along with FLV Smoked Butterscotch making up the RY4. Enjoy!
It’s a longer steep than I usually will tolerate but in this case it’s worth it. Rather authentic banana with vanilla wafers created by biscuit and cereal 27. Vanilla ice cream and pudding help smooth out the bananas and make this a creamy full vape that you won’t want to put down. 4 weeks steep at a minimum or you won’t get the true experience of this mix.
Mixed Live on SaturDIY'ing with Fresh & Friends.
Set out to make a Phillies/White Owl Banana Blunt. This is not that. After version 1 came out tasting like eating a banana marshmallow in a tobacco shop, I whipped up this remix with help from Fresh and his chat. It came out too good for a bottom shelf blunt. This is a top-shelf banana cigar. It's the Banana Abuela.

On the inahle you get the sweet waffle dough and banana and on the exhale you get the sweet dark syrup notes that tend to linger with the pecans . The percentage is high in this mix as OOO waffle and SA banana flambe need are not super concentrates and need to be high to come through and contrast the sweet syrup notes
WAFFLE is a slightly toasted sweet dough waffle base no real dark notes, or syrup notes. it needs some support so SUGAR CONE is added for some of the darker notes
BANANA FLAMBE and BANANA NUT BREAD provides a nice sweet banana note which support that warmed sweet banana note this mix needs.
BUTTER PECAN adds the dark rich nuttiness and butter that this mix needed
MAPLE, GOLDEN SYRUP work to create a really nice maple syrup . Maple up around 2% can be gritty so the golden syrup helps in this situation
SUBS: LB waffle is a great sub for the waffle base if added you can remove the sugar cone and brown sugar

This is a cinnamon roll with a banana slice and a caramel glaze on top. Caramel cinnamon roll does the heavy lifting in terms of providing most of the bakery here. The banana is a combo of sa Banana flambe which is a nice cooked banana flavor and tfa bananas foster which brings some brown sugar to the mix. VT Salted caramel boosts the caramel note already here and adds to the dark sweetness I was going for.
I based this recipe off "Fugly Butters" @Ebc88 "This is a fried banana pudding" & Bad Drips "Ugly Butter " description: "They don't call it ugly for nothing... Uncle Freddy's famous, fancy fried dough, showered with carnival cultivated cinnamon-sugar, serenaded with a cosby-quality banana pudding."
So, here it goes...
FLV Vanilla Pudding/VT Pudding Base: these 2 combined make up a delicious "Cosby-esque" vanilla puddin'
SA Banana Flambe: gives the fried banana aspect and also adds a touch of cinnamon...
VT Banana Custard: ties together the banana flambe with the pudding while adding some more depth to the banana pudding aspect of the recipe
FLV Rich Cinnamon: turns up the cinnamon flavor.
CAP Funnel Cake: In Bad Drips description they talk of funnel cake and Capella had just dropped their funnel cake around the time that Ugly Butter hit the shelves, so I figure it's in there... so why not?
WF Cinnamon Pastry: no reason other than I just picked this up and wanted to give it a try... plus I figured it would add some more depth to the bakery/dough aspect of the recipe while adding a bit more cinnamon... which it seems to do just fine...
TPA Toasted Marshmallow: to add a little sweetness, mouthfeel, depth and body to the entire recipe.
CAP SS: why not?... It's a tooth rotting belt busting State Fair Treat... it needs to be sweet! 0.5% does just that... add more or don't if you want to...
FA Joy: to bring out the yeasty-ness of the fried dough just a lil more... feel free to omit it... I personally don't care for joy either, but it works well here...
3 day steep and the banana calms down... day 5 the pudding melds together and everything tastes delicious... didn't make it past a week with the first batch, so I don't know if it'll change much at the 2 week mark...

Mixed for the mixen vixens the image this week looked to me to be a graham cracker base with a philly cream cheese filing and a banana flambe topping
On the inhale of the vape you get the dark sweet caramelized notes followed by the sweet vanilla cream cheese and slight cooked caramelized banana finish
FW Graham Cracker is a solid graham cracker with some vanilla butter notes - it creates the base for this mix along with JB biscut for some additional texture and butter notes
INW yes we can cheesecake and INW creme brulee work well together to create a creamy filling very similar to the philly cream cheese . It is more of a creamy vanilla then an authentic Italian cream cheese filling. The burnt sugar note of INW cream brulee is also used in this mix to support that flambe note .
The SA banana flambe is a sweet cooked banana, that initally can be a bit like candy but has a really nice full body. It is noticeable on the back end of the inhale but is light on the caramelized sugar and rum. To support the caramelized sugars and syrup I added Jamaican rum, golden syrup and smokey butterscotch FLV smoked butterscotch adds a woody warm note on the back end which is really unique., and build off of the rum. VT golden syrup is a darker sweet syrup that has a nice sticky mouth feel
NOTES/SUB: This is a sweet mix on its own so does not really need sweetner but if you want to add more would recommend FLV sweetness .50%
Banana Flambe can be subed with Molinberry soft banana or WF banana puree ( for a slightly brighter top banana) if you want more of a cake note then TPA banana nut bread has a solid banana note and could work here .
In other versions of this mix I have subed Smokey Butterscotch for FW butter pecan if you do not want that smokey note but you want more texture and swet nuttiness to the mix or WF Butterscotch cream pie for more cream and lighter butterscotch top note .
